Dejima, Nagasaki

(3.8/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1634 in order to segregate foreign traders and to discourage any chance of spreading Christianity, Dejima once allowed the Japanese a glimpse into the Western world. Today, the area attracts tourists with its vibrant scene of Japanese and foreign restaurants, bars, and stores. Take a walk down the boardwalk and enjoy a mesmerizing sunset, or watch sailboats and yachts embellished with colorful lights, which look magical in the evening. While there, you can also visit a local museum displaying artifacts related to Nagasaki's rich trading history.

  • Can dine overlooking the port of Nagasaki, but weekday lunch was rattles all the shops. By the way, says the Western Pavilion was closed.

  • I went after Dejima. Could not open any shops because it was still more than 9. Sorry, can't get there are some nice shops. Because of this, unfortunately, you can't adequately.

  • Located by the sea in the port of Nagasaki, is excellent. Dejima Café has live bands playing on the second floor. You can see clean Mitsubishi cranes of the world heritage site while listening to music at night.

  • Pretty cool. If you're interested in history it's worth a visit. It's almost all reconstruction but it gives a good idea as to what it would have been like. It's not quite finished yet, so there's a little building work still happening. On the other hand, it is very very cheap and extremely unique, so it's worth visiting once.
  • Uninteresting and hot buildings with no place to sit. You might love it if you are a history fan and can read japanese
  • It is a nice historical site for knowing the history of Japan and how Japan related to foreign countries.
  • Very interesting open air museum about the dejima island with reconstructed Dutch houses. Most exhibits have an English description.
  • The entrance fee is worthwhile to pay. You can know more about the rule of Tokugawa from visiting this place.
